I am using a program called SpamPal and it works well. By choice I send the SPAM to my delete box. I have OE set to clear deleted messages on closing, however it is required to view the message first. The whole point is that I do not want to view my spam. Any suggestions?
I myself use Spampal, and I set OE to put tagged messages in the delete folder and not marked as read (blue numbers beside it appear as the number of messages increases), and it works nicely like that.
To be sure Spampal hasn't tagged a message wrongly, I deactivate the preview pane, check for sollicited messages in the delete folder (it never failed up to now ) and find none, then I simply right click on the delete folder and select empty folder, no problems with that.
But, it also works the same way when the preview pane is active.... !
Oooops, I forgot, you can select the option mark messages as read in the message rules !
